Swim for Syria


Syrian refugees & sponsors of Syrian refugees.


Starting Sunday April 10th for 8 weeks Janet Barber Aquatics is offering free private swimming lessons to Syrian refugees in our area. Janet Barber Aquatics will provide 1:1 instruction to those who are afraid but want to learn.


Please Contact Janet Barber directly by phone or email for more information.

Please share what we are doing with anyone you think might be interested. We believe that learning to swim is an important life skill. Canada has many lakes, rivers and pools and it is very important to know how to swim.

Janet Barber Staff is Learning!

The Janet Barber team is learning all about the Syrian culture.
